HANFORD, CA – On Tuesday, Justin Mendes was the highest vote getter in California’s Primary Election for Assembly District 32. He released the following statement after making it into the November General Election.

“Sacramento is broken and tonight is evidence of that. We started a grassroots campaign three months ago, and I am overwhelmed by the amount of support I received tonight. I will continue fighting for the residents of the central valley and to keep our cities safe.”

Earlier this year, Mendes discovered that a registered sex offender was living next to his children’s daycare. Mendes contacted Salas’s office for assistance. His office suggested that the daycare provider simply pack up and move. Fixing Megan’s Law and keeping children safe from sex offenders was not something Assemblymember Salas wanted to pursue.
